Quite possible your cord might have a frayed wire in it. When the cord gets
bumped, it shorts and the PC loses power.Buy another cord and see if it
happens again.
Or one of the pins might have worked loose enough that when you bump it, it
shuts down.

Certainly sounds like a power chord problem. I had the same problem with my
last computer the day I took delivery of it. Every so often - CRASH. Every
time I inserted a CD into the drive - CRASH. With a CD in the drive, on
power up, no problem. Tested the chord on another computer and a kettle. No
problem. Had me puzzled for days, until I finally changed the chord. No
problems since. It turned out that there was no problem with the chord, it
just didn't like that particular computer.
Your problem doesn't sound like a power "chord" problem any more than
the OP's problem.

I take it those are power chords. Can they be used to play a volts?

:)
If you want to sound like Status Quo (Ever hear of them in USA?) you
need a strong little finger to play their 3-chord rhythms.
Things like A A6 A7 where the 6 & 7 are added with the smallest digit.

I wore out their "Quo" album back in the 70's, especially side 1. I
know they made a gazillion albums, but that was the only one I had.
Backwater and Just Take Me were killer.

I'm not in that world, so I can't speak for the others in the USA :)

My music tends to be classical music and Eastern European folk-dance
music. Mezõségi, anyone?
